hello everyone, i am new to this site, i am happy about losing weight and being healthy for me. Report
Hello everyone, my name is Millie May. I joined the sparkspeople page in may 2012. I did this to track my food and to make changes in my diet ways. This is not easy to do. I also wanted a way to track my exercise. i have MS ( multiple sclerosis), so some days i am unable to exercise or it slows me down, this can last from a day up to 2 weeks. I will not let this stop me. But some times i need supporrt. I'm hoping i can find it here. when i started exercising in may i weighed 270lbs i lost 3lbs before i enjoined sparkspeoples page. I have lost another 6lbs with this page.. I welcome any advice i can get, I am open minded. I do get up and move just to move. I do leg squats doing dishes or cooking. I do circle motions while cleaning counters and table tops and dusting. These little things i can feel in my arms and legs. So you see any little hints please do tell me. Lets be friends i sure can use same. I'm learning how to use this site. I am also a busy mother. My son and daughter are active in baseball, my daughter and i also are active in girl scouts. And because of this i am eating out alot, this is bad. I do try to pack things but they get soggy and no good. If you know any ideas please tell me. there are no bad ideas..Thanks for your support.

Hello Everybody!
I joined curves on Saturday June 2 at 236 lbs. The next day I weighed again and the scale was day of the SPARK program didnt do that.
I realized what ONE of my problems is....I eat popcorn almost everyday with popcorn salt. I happened to be out of it for about 4 days and the results of that showed up on the scale that Sunday. I was so excited...the scale was finally moving...WELL the next day..Monday..I went to the store and bought more popcorn and wouldnt you know, by the next day the scale was back up to 236...Here's some more info..I dont just eat a small bowl...I make my popcorn the old fashioned way on top of the stove with oil..A BIG pan of it...I eat it while I sit at my computer and read...I know good and well it has to be the popcorn SALT keeping the scale from moving...I have learned to stay within the calorie range and I go to CURVES at least 3x a week and I walk my dog 20 minutes..2x a day....I havent lost weight but I have lost inches. I have learned a lot this week, reading the message board and the blogs and the articles. I KNOW I need to apply what I have learned...and learn how to use these trackers... Report
At 73, I need to lose quite a few pounds to take weight off my hips. I'm very new to this site so glad I found it. Report
Hello, I have been here a week and just learning my way around. And I have lost weight and fill like a winner everytime I get point. Some day I may learn what the points are for - but for now it is great to get some clarity with the food. Thanks, Sparks! Report

Good advice. First day i went into the gym i felt a bit akward.. I used most of the equipment and found what I Liked and did not like to do. So I worked on what I didn't . That was doing sit ups. Using the treadmill I had the habit of hanging on to it, that was due to me going too fast and it threw me off balance. Son make the adjustments and start out slow. After days of training you may be surpised that you can start running . Challenging myself I lost over 40 pounds using the treadmill Report
I have been doing sparks for a week, had a good 6 days and yesterday blew it big time, then beat myself up. I am trying again today, which is a new day. Lots of joint pain because of extra weight. Report
